On day 44, we were supposed to make something that lights up. I worked with a mini lamp that I got at goodwill and cleaned up a little.
I got this idea from pinterest a looong time ago... it's from A Little Glass Box. You just take a boring white lampshade, and write on it with sharpie.
I wrote some Dr. Seuss quotes on this lamp in cursive (I know the younger ones won't be able to read it, but I can tell them what it says if they ask) and put it over at my listening center.
